Sometimes in the Premier League, a difficult stretch of matches to open the season can derail a promising campaign. Cowboys Jerseys Online .But Liverpool have passed that opening test with flying colours, emerging with 17 points and sitting comfortably in fourth place with a stretch of winnable games ahead, starting with Saturdays tilt against West Bromwich Albion at Anfield.The fixture computer can be incredibly cruel at times, as it seemingly was to Liverpool (5-2-1) when the schedule was released. The Reds were handed trips to Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea over the first eight league matches.Throw in the reality that of those eight, the first three were away from home due to the redevelopment of Anfields Main Stand. They also faced Manchester United and defending champions Leicester City at home. It was definitely a daunting task that had a potential bleak start written all over it.However, Jürgen Klopps high-pressing style has fit well on Merseyside. The club has been able to produce some breathtaking attacking passages thanks to the brilliant quartet of Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.Coming into the weekend, only Manchester City and Arsenal (19) have scored more goals than Liverpools 18, but theyll have to remain focused with the distraction of European football if they are to truly challenge for the top four or even the title.Mondays scoreless draw with Man U produced little in the way of attacking chances as United goalkeeper David De Gea was only really tested once. Emre Cans second half effort was denied by De Gea while Firmino looked sure to score after getting in behind, only to be repelled by an excellent sliding challenge from Antonio Valencia.Despite not collecting three points on a night when perhaps they should have, at least one former Red believes good things are in store for Klopps charges.Jürgen is looking good for the club, I think hes doing well, former defender Daniel Agger said prior to Mondays clash. He has some great ideas and the way he talks with the media, everything, I like.With the club set to take the pitch at Anfield for only the third time on the campaign, Klopp commented on what its like to play in the redeveloped venue.Its great, its great -- its not easy to describe because we all loved the old Anfield, the manager said. When I first came here for the friendly with Borussia Dortmund, I dont think theyd already started to do the work on the new Main Stand, but it already was a really nice and historical stadium.West Bromwich Albion (2-4-2), meanwhile, are riding a decent wave of form, unbeaten in four straight including three consecutive draws. The Baggies enter the weekend in 12th place, but are certain to be challenged by the Merseysiders slew of attacking prowess.If there is another manager -- aside from Jose Mouinho -- who can come up with a tactical plan to stifle Liverpools attack, its probably West Broms Tony Pulis. He has garnered a reputation for building defensively strong teams.West Broms current four-match unbeaten run in league play will have them brimming with confidence, but it may have taken a small hit after last weeks 1-1 stalemate with Tottenham. West Brom allowed the equaliser in the 89th minute to end the day in frustrating fashion.Still, midfielder James McClean is impressed with his sides form over the last month.We are four unbeaten now so its all good signs, the Ireland international said. Im delighted with the way I am playing at the moment and the team is also doing well so I am happy.Saturday was a tough game against a quality side and, if I am honest, we were outplayed by Spurs in the first half. But in the second 45 we gave it a right good go and we were unfortunate not to hold on to the lead.The sides drew both Premier League meetings last season.Liverpool won the first nine Premier League contests between these sides, outscoring West Brom 25-0. Since then, West Brom have gone 4-4-3 in the series.The last three top-flight matchups between the sides have been drawn. Charles Haley Jersey . The 43-year-old closer, in his 19th and final big league season, has said hed like to play the outfield.

Weight hasnt stopped Flash Fibian from landing a telling blow to assert his class at Rosehill.The Paul Murray-trained three-year-old was sent out the $10 outsider in the seven-horse field in Saturdays Ascend Sales Trophies Handicap (1200m).But the underdog finished strongest to beat Gibraltar Girl ($4.80) by a long head with $4 favourite Lubiton a short neck away third.Carrying 61kg, Flash Fibian was able to race with cover under jockey Tye Angland and let down quickest to score an impressive victory.The horse was narrowly defeated in the Listed Heritage Stakes at Randwick when first-up on September 17.He was then disappointing in the Group Two Roman Consul Stakes and the Listed Brian Crowley Sttakes on October 1 and 15 respectively. Damien Wilson Jersey. .He didnt seem to put in so we just decided to freshen him up right up, Murray said.Murray said while blinkers had not worked for Flash Fibian as two-year-old, their return had helped him to record his third win from 10 starts.Hes a gelding now, so with $100,000 races you might as well just pick up what you can, Murray said.Angland said Flash Fibian had relished the inside draw and drop in class.From the soft gate we had a beautiful run, Angland said.He had to carry a big weight but showed a really nice turn of foot.
